    Hi, my name is Sue, and I am a Fabric Addict.
    These are the 12 steps to recovery that I wrote....but I've only made it to #2! LOL


    ● We admitted we were powerless over fabric—that our quilt studios had become unmanageable
    ● Came to believe that a new storage system could restore us to sanity
    ● Made a decision to turn our will and our stash over to the care of a professional organizer
    ● Made a searching and fearless inventory of our stash
    ● Admitted to ourselves, and to another quilter, the exact nature of our stash
    ● Were entirely ready to donate our old fabric to our Philanthropy Chairperson
    ● Humbly asked the Philanthropy Chair to come take the old fabric
    ● Made a list of all projects we had left unfinished, and became willing to complete them all
    ● Made direct efforts to complete such projects, wherever possible, except when to do so would require buying more fabric
    ● Continued to take stash inventory and when we were tempted to create another UFO or PIG, promptly admitted it
    ● Sought through classes and guild workshops to improve our completion rate and have the willpower to carry that out
    ● Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to fabric addicts, and to practice these principles in all our shop hops ●

    LOL. Good one Sue, you gave me a good giggle. I'm at about step 5 but that's about as far as I'm prepared to go. THey should have health warnings on those pretty little coordinated packs that get you started :lol:

    12 steps are too many!
    Would say this though...

    Qulter's Healing Phrases.
    1. I am in a productive relationship with my fabric.
    I try to produce ...it keeps on producing.

    2.I share my stash.
    I share with others....it shares inspiration.

    3.Agreement is my motto.
    I agree to finish my projects....it agrees to supply me with more.

    4.I am assured of my sanity.
    If ever I question....my stash remains adamantly silent.

    5. I am a quilter.
    I am hopelessly addicted.....it is impossible to cure...I don't want one...my stash is my best friend....I find it late at night , or early in the morning...I .....gotta go.....it beckons once more.

    I totally agree with SANDRA. I'm addicited and I don't need or want a cure. It is my solace, and my own little world.
